Since 1956, the Piedmonte winemaker Michele Chiarlo has made superior Barberas and high quality Barolos that today are consistently among the most renowned expressions of these wines. Over the years, Michele Chiarlo has realized a success and recognition brought by constant pursuit of quality.
The winery is 100% family owned and operated, showcasing only local, single varietal expressions of terroir- no international grapes and no blends. The family specializes in 4 grapes that are considered to be the greatest native varietals of Piedmont: Nebbiolo, Barbera, Cortese and Moscato.
The vineyards lie on the steep, southwest facing Langhe hillsides. Grapes are harvested an average of 10 to 15 days later than normal, resulting in extremely rich musts high in sugar and lower in acidity. Temperature controlled fermentation is followed by malolactic fermentation and aging in French Allier and Slavonian oak followed by additional aging in bottle.
